Australia’s tour to India next month would be an interesting ODI series.
India always prefer to field first, and Australia loves to bat first, and with all games played under lights (2 separate balls used from each end)a challenging task for teams to chase and defend.
This year itself Australia success while batting first is 61 .53% ( 8/13 ratio) and India have much better success rate chasing -76.92 %(10/13 ratio).
